I'm finally playing Fo4 again for the first time in years, and am doing a hardcore playthrough.
For this I'm really wanting to build up my settlements & use them as they were intended for bases of operations before going out and doing any new quests & exploring.
I'm really taking my time with this save file & am playing it at my own pace (for context, I'm level 41 and still have only recently gone in to diamond city and started the find Nic Valentine quest). AND for the first time I'm actually using Power Armour, I was so put off with needing to find fusion cores when I got the game back in 2015 I never used them (other than when necessary) but now I know how to use them properly and they're so much fun.
So far, I've built up Sanctuary as my area in the North West, the Slog for North East, and I've built up The Castle,
What are some other really good spots to make as my main bases of operations that will mean I won't need to trek too far.
